“Lovely Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012 via mobile

We recently had a 3 night stay at this hotel, mainly to visit the theatre, which is conveniently situated across the road! We have stayed in Stratford upon Avon many times at different establishments, and can truly say the Arden hotel was our most enjoyable. The room was lovely, big comfortable bed, towels changed daily, fresh milk and ground coffee, and a turn down service at night with bottled water laid out on the bedside tables. We only ate once at the hotel, tasty meal but a little pricy for us, but the breakfast was excellent and very good value. The staff are professional and friendly, we would certainly return and would recommend this hotel to others.

Stayed March 2012

The Ardent is across the road from the RSC. The room we had was large, sumptuously furnished with a very comfortable bed. Massive bathroom with both a shower and a separate marble topped bath. Food is good but seems expensive if not part of the package. In short probably the best hotel in Stratford upon Avon if only for the location!

I currently work in Stratford upon Avon 4 days per week. Anyone who works away from home will understand how difficult and lonely this can be. After staying at several of the large so called 4* hotels in Stratford, I decided to try The Arden Hotel.

You are welcomed on reception by the most efficient and friendly staff you would ever wish to meet. You are helped to your room with your luggage and a full explanation of all the facitilites is given to you.

The rooms are very luxurious with fresh coffee, a cafetteire, fresh milk and bottled water. The toiletries are of a very high standard and the rooms are the cleanest I have ever experienced in a hotel. You are offered a turn down service each evening. One of the things that impressed me was that room service has no additional charges. You can have breakfast delivered to your room at a time thats convenient to you and dinner/drinks are reasonably priced. The food is fresh and amazing.

One thing that makes this hotel stand out from the rest are the staff. You are treated like 'family' - the staff will go way beyond the extra mile to make your stay more comfortable/homely. If you fancy something to eat that isnt on the menu, just ask and they will accomodate.

If you are considering a trip to Stratford upon Avon whether it be for business or pleasure - please try this hotel. You will be amazed at the quality of not only the Hotel but also the staff. Truly exceptional!
